Hi

We have a requirement to give an account domain\Exchange1 Full Mailbox Access on about 100 mailboxes.

We were thinking of moving these 100 mailboxes to a dedicated store, and then assigning the permission on the Store level.

Is this possible/recommended?

Yes it can be done as follows......
Granting right to a mailboxes located within a specific mailbox store
======================================================
Use the following procedure to grant access to Exchange 2000 or an Exchange 2003 mailboxes found on a specific mailbox store:
Note: You must have the appropriate Exchange administrative permissions to do so.

1.Start Exchange System Manager.
2.Drill down to your server object within the appropriate Administrative Group. Expand the server object and find the required mailbox store within the appropriate Storage Group. Right-click it and choose Properties.
3.In the Properties window go to the Security tab
4.Click Add, click the user who you want to have access to the mailboxes, and then click OK.
5.Be sure that the user is selected in the Name box.
6.In the Permissions list, click Allow next to Full Control, and then click OK. Then again Click Ok all the way out.
Note: Make sure there is no Deny checkbox selected next to the Send As and Receive As permissions.
Note: The user which needs to have full mailbox access should not be member of any other groups which have Send As & Receive As right as denied.

It might take some time before the changes you've made will take effect. The amount of time needed is influenced by the number of domain controllers, Global Catalogs and site replication schedules and intervals. On one domain with one site containing multiple domain controllers it might take up to 15 minutes before you can begin using these new permissions. On single servers that are also DCs you can speed up the process by restarting the Information Store service. Also replicate the Active Directory information between the DC's by going to Active Directory Sites & Services & expannding each DC server & highlighting the NTDS settings then on the right hand pane .....Right click the next DC & click on Replicate Now...this will speed up the Active Directory replication between local DC's

What I meant in the Note: You must have the appropriate Exchange administrative permissions to do so......is you should have full Exchange Administrative rights....which can be assigned on Exchange 200o or Exchange 2003 server by right clicking the Exchange Organization in the Exchange System Manager then click on Delegate Control & add the user to which you need to give Full Exchange Administrative right......
